Artisans from around the world will convene at the Pearl this weekend for the International Artisan Fair. The International Artisans Alliance is teaming up with local businesses and organizations to bring artisans from 14 countries to showcase their work. Most have come a long way to represent their art and their communities and ninety percent of the sales go to the artisans.
It all begins on Friday with a preview party and continues through the weekend with activities for everyone. This family friendly event is a great way to get some holiday shopping done and help out a non-profit organization.
